The aptly named Souk Kafe opened in March 2010.  Mike and Lucie of Marrakech Riad were the first customers! The Cafe is located  at the northern end of the famous Souks at  11 derb Souk Jeldid  about 50 metres south from the well known shrine of Sidi Abdelaziz just around the corner from Riad Cinnamon and less than five minutes from Riad Papillon. There is a large straw teapot on the roof terrace which makes Souk Cafe easy to spot from other roof terraces in the central medina.

There are two comfortable lounges as well as a roof terrace with great views. The menu includes moroccan standards like tagine and cous cous served with tea, soft drinks and juices. It is possible to eat well here for less than ten euros.

Marrakech is a vibrant and exciting destination with new cafes and restaurants opening every month. Reserve Accommodation today in our stunning Marrakech Riads in the heart of the old town Medina.

Spices in the Souk in MarrakechThe Marrakech Souks are great fun to explore whether on your own or with a guide. For centuries craftsmen and merchants have congregated in specialist souks including areas for metalworkers, leatherworkers, dyers, carpets, spices, traditional medicines and many others.

Metalwork in the Marrakech SouksThere was a time when the persistent attention of hustlers and self appointed guides made it difficult for the faint hearted to explore and enjoy the famous Marrakech Souks. Today the whole area is effectively policed by specialist Tourist Brigade Police and tour guides are licensed. Wander at leisure before returning to the comfort of your Marrakech Riad base.
